World No Tobacco Day is observed around the world every year on May 31. It is meant to encourage a 24-hour period of abstinence from all forms of tobacco consumption across the globe. The day is further intended to draw global attention to the widespread prevalence of tobacco use and to negative health effects, which currently lead to 5.4 million deaths worldwide annually. Since 1987, the day has been met with both enthusiasm and resistance across the globe from governments, public health organizations, smokers, growers, and the tobacco industry.
Government income: Areas listed as excisable by many governments, and considering the thinkers' comments: To protect people – from harming their health by abusing substances such as tobacco and alcohol. To provide monies needed – for the extra healthcare and other public expenditures which will be needed as a direct or indirect result of excisable activities, such as lung cancer from smoking or road accidents resulting from drunk driving.

Hundred years celebration...e-Tribute to Shri Jethalal S. Zaveri....my father fondly known as Jethabhai. About Illustrious Father:
17 April 1911 - 17 November 1993.
Founder and Managing Director of Bharat Bijlee Ltd., for 33 years.
Past Chairman, IEEMA. Member Institute of Standards.
His contribution to Electrical Industry as a great industrialist of his time is remembered even today.
He was described as Bhisma Pitamaha of the Indian Electrical Industry in India.
He was one of the first industrialist in India to have foreign collaboration with Siemens (Germany) in 1959.
There are many people who practice and preach science of living. Jethabhai not only did this, but also demonstrated science of dying. He embraced Samthara and left his body on November 17 1993.
“Economic development and oversupply of consumer goods cannot reduce violence and crime. On the contrary, they can be instrumental in increasing them. The future of humanity lies in a balanced development of work, wealth and self-restraint. Labour and wealth represent the basic aspects of life. On the other hand, self-restraint represents life’s spiritual aspect. A mentally steady life is impossible to conceive if education or training is not based on all the three.” He has written many books and translated many Jain scriptures into English.
Hon. Professor of Science of Living at Jain Vishwa Bharati Institute (Deemed University), Rajsthan, India.
Mahendra Muni has mastered the Avadhan vidya (Shatavadhani). Technique of high concentration, amazing memory and computation power like computer. Memory is an inherent quality of consciousness and Avadhan is a process for developing the same. He can memories Sanskrit Couplets, long numbers with many digits, sentences of unknown languages, etc. merely by listening to them only once! He is also excellent in Mathematics. Mathematics is another facet of Avadhan, whereby problems requiring hours can be solved in a few minutes.
Author of over 15 books on philosophy, comparative studies on Science and Philosophy, Meditation, Mathematics, Atomic Science, and Jainism, etc.
India has ever been a breeding ground for the spiritual Sciences. Whereas the occident has applied its resources for the development of Nuclear (atomic) energy, Indian saints and sages have devoted their attention for the development of spiritual power and have achieved wonderful success. He along with Acharya shri Mahaprgna had several meetings with the President of India A. P. J. Kalam.
He is third son of Mr. Jethalal S. Zaveri. He graduated in B. Sc. first class first in the University of Bombay, 1957. He was initiated as a Jain Sadhu by Acharya Shri Tulsi. Muni Mahendra has good command over Sanskrit, Prakrit, Pali, English, German and other languages. He has written and edited number of books on Preksha Meditation.
Helpful information about Preksha meditation. Preksha is a process of awakening ones own reasoning mind (Viveka) and thereby control ones passions and emotions. It is based on the principle of engaging ones mind by concentrating on the perception rather than on thought. The perception, again, is that of internal phenomena of consciousness and not that of external objects.in reference to:
